Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser racked up 88 episodes as America's hippest cop duo of the 1970s. Ripping round the streets of an anonymous city in a red Ford Torino (with its much-copied go-faster stripes), they were a buddy team that wasn't afraid to get tough, as in this pilot movie, in which they investigate a double homicide. Michael Lerner guest stars alongside Antonio Fargas as Huggy Bear, Richard Ward as Captain Dobey (the part was taken over by Bernie Hamilton in the TV series) and Hill Street Blues regular Michael Conrad, who's on the wrong side of the law here, playing a hitman.
